LondonlawyerJ :

Hello I am a solicitor with over 15 years experience. I will try to help ou with this.

LondonlawyerJ :

If the tutuor has doen this he has committed a serius offence, bit if the girl feels loyal to him and is unwilling to provide evidence it may be hard to prove. I am not sure what your posiyions is n this and whose head teacher are you referring to? The girl or the tutor?

Customer:

the tutor's head teacher, they are now at different schools.And she is my daughter.I seriously doubt he should be allowed to be a teacher

Have you reported this to the police? It seems to me that you need to exercise some care here. Obviously your main concern is for your daughter but you fear this man may be predatory and may do this again. This is a judgment call for you if you inform the tutors headmaster what has happened he may feel obliged to instigate an investigation and may call in the police. In fact he would almost certainly need to do those things. This would lead to your daughter being put in an awkward position. If she doesn't want to get him into trouble it will be very hard, in fact impossible, to compel her to do so. If she did give a statement and he denied it then she could end up giving evidence and being cross examined. That is unlikely to be very pleasant.

Even if she has told people this has been going on, that wold probably not be usable in evidence.

You, I think, need to weigh up the damage to your daughter by reporting this man against the damage by not doing so and decide which is the least bad option.
